Seyi Makinde, Governor of Oyo State and his Rivers state counterpart, Nyesom Wike on Friday visited President-elect, Bola Tinubu, at the Defence House, Abuja.
Speaking during the visit, Wike asked Nigerians to rally around Tinubu, saying the time for politics is over.
He told journalists after meeting with Tinubu at the Defence House in Abuja on Friday that the time for politics is over and as such the incoming president needs the support of Nigerians.
Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) to clinch the seat in the hotly-contested February poll.
Although Wike belongs to the PDP (did not support the party’s candidate), the Rivers leader is asking Nigerians to back the incoming administration which is set to be sworn in on May 29th, 2023.
“Elections have come and gone. The winner has emerged and therefore is it necessary for all Nigerians to give him the necessary support for the interest of Nigeria,” Wike told journalists after meeting with Tinubu at the Defence House in Abuja on Friday.
“I am confident that he has what it takes to turn Nigeria around,” the governor added.
